She just gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and now it's time for Ciara to get ready for her trip down the aisle to meet hubby-to-be Future.

While posing in a few bridal gowns for the August/September 2014 issue of Brides magazine, the "Body Party" singer opened up about her wedding plans and what she looks forward to the most in her marriage to the 30-year-old rapper.

On meeting her fiancé:
“Our label put us together. I went into the studio strictly to work, but he was very calm and sweet, a gentleman.… Ugh, I can’t believe I’m crying! I knew right away that he was different. Now he’s my best friend in the world, my partner.”

On the proposal:
“We were in New York for my birthday, and he had a show that night. As soon as I woke up the next morning, it went down. It was so thoughtful—the best birthday ever. I had no idea it was coming.”

On her wedding plans:
“Indoors and black tie. For the palette, I’m not into loud colors. I like black and white, classic and clean.”

Celeb performers to expect at the big day: “A few of our friends will sing, and we’ll have a great DJ—good old soul mixed with new stuff. You want people to say, ‘This is my jam!’”

On her bridal party:
“There will be five or six and two matrons of honor [including La La Anthony]. They’ll all wear the same color, but in different styles to suit their personalities. I want my ladies to look amazing!”

On what she looks forward to most in marriage: “Raising a baby together, traveling around the world, and creating new moments. I love that I won’t think twice about what I’m doing in life, because I know I’m doing it all for the person I love most. And I know he’s doing the same in return.”
